St-Martin - Shopping & duty-free

St-Martin, island paradise for shoppers...

st martin shopping

It’s hard to think about St. Martin without mentioning its great shopping, or the possibility of stocking up on gifts for friends back home.

Although many other tourist destinations claim to be “duty-free”, St. Martin is the only destination in the French West Indies that can truly lay claim to a tax-free status. With no customs duties, VAT or other indirect taxes to pay, the island offers unbeatable prices on a whole host of items.

The island’s French side has a wide range of luxury and fashion boutiques.
The impressive air-conditioned West Indies Mall on Marigot water front contains many well-known shops and restaurants and is worth the visit.
The Marina district and the Rue du Général de Gaulle are also high fashion hot spots.

Stores selling hi-fi, TV, video, electronics, eyewear, watches, jewellery, alcohol, tobacco, textiles and cosmetics can be found on the French and Dutch sides of the island.
